Dear Friends,

After much discussion and prayer, we agree that it is time to take the next steps in moving forward. We encourage more individual responsibility in our community of members and friends. Masks are now optional, and the 6-foot spacing designation has been removed at CUMC. We encourage each of you to do what is right for you in wearing or not wearing a mask. Let each other know if you are okay with a wave, an elbow bump, or a hug. The Bibles have been placed in the pew racks for your use.

We still have a few measures in place, such as the distance between the pulpit and the congregation remains as is. We aren’t singing yet, but the hymnals are in place so you can follow along with the words. Coffee Fellowship will be scheduled sometime in the future. Thank you for all your patience over the past year and your continued patience as we transition into the future.

Please join us Sunday, June 13, for Sunday worship at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary or livestreamed via Zoom.

Information to know:

  • Masks are optional and the 6 foot distancing designation has been removed.
  • Social Time after worship is at 11 a.m.
  • There is one worship service, live and livestreamed at 10 a.m. Childcare is available.
  • Viewers from home will be able to join the livestream @ 9:45 a.m. with a Zoom link and will see the sanctuary live and hear pre-worship music, much as we did before we stopped in person worship last year.
  • Attending in person: waves will be important to welcome our streamed visitors and each other.
  • Adult Sunday School is in room 107 at 8:45 – 9:45 a.m.
  • NEW! We are offering a Summer Program of activities for children age 2-12 during worship.
